Ready Player One, the new movie from the incredible mind of Steven Spielberg had fans talking with its first trailer revealed at Comic-Con. The new trailer just adds to the excitement revealing, even more, details and including even more easter eggs and goodies than the first. ‘
Ready Player One is based on the Ernest Cline’s best-selling novel of the same name which has become a worldwide phenomenon. Set in the year 2045, the world is on brink of collapse and chaos due to lack of natural resources, food due to overpopulation. To escape the harshness of the real world, people escape to a massive virtual reality world called the Oasis created by the brilliant James Halliday (Mark Rylance).
When Halliday dies, he announces he has hidden an Easter Egg somewhere in the massive world and is offering a massive fortune and ownership of the Oasis to whoever finds it. That’s where our unlikely hero Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) comes into play. When decides to jump into the contest that has taken a grip on the whole world, he is thrown into an amazing life-changing treasure hunt.
Think Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory but with virtual reality and video games involved basically. The trailer itself is full of various pop culture references, and characters from many popular video games, movies, television shows and comics. So have fun spotting all of them out in the 2:25 trailer above, but if you need some help this video here will help tremendously and get you hyped for this film.
Ready Player One stars: Tye Sheridan (“X-Men: Apocalypse,” “Mud”), Olivia Cooke (“Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” “Bates Motel”), Ben Mendelsohn (“Rogue One – A Star Wars Story,” “Bloodline”) and T.J. Miller (“Deadpool,” “Silicon Valley”), with Simon Pegg (the “Star Trek” movies, the “Mission: Impossible” movies) and Oscar winner Mark Rylance (“Bridge of Spies,” upcoming “Dunkirk”)
This film looks amazing, and we cannot wait to see it.
